Another fantastic film by Col. Charles G. Kirk
This is another great film by Col. Charles G. Kirk, this time showing some vibrant street life in Mexico, with great signage, and a little street performance with a number of parrots. The film features a 1929 Packard again, same as in his San Francisco film; I'm guessing the car was his own personal vehicle. As I mentioned in the other film, he was a Colonel in the USAF, and later he became R.O.T.C. Commandant, and professor of air science at the University of Iowa. He could also operate a 16mm film camera quite well, it seems!
